    It's nobody else's business if I carry or not. I don't advertise and only certain family members and friends know.

    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    It’s proven that concealed carry laws diminish the crime rates where they are in effect.
    I will say I live in a supposedly gun friendly state but I know for a fact if you use a handgun in the most righteous self defense situation, you will probably get a long, extensive, and most thorough anal exam by the law you can imagine.
    The judicial system is something you must fear as much as the armed robber if you are so unlucky as to come under the purview of either.

    You don't walk around with your fly open and your 'junk' hanging out so why hang your gun out?

    This thread got way off track. The OP said he posted on a forum that he carries. Most here have done the same. Heck, I need look no further than the very first reply in this thread and a quick history check of the forum member.

    Ohio is an open carry state. Today is the 2nd. You have a duty to open carry sometime today unless you are one of those people that think everyone knows you are carrying concealed............

    Good advice.

    All these shootings we hear about in the news... no one shooting back.

    Hey, it's only a quick trip to Walmart... no need to bother carrying.
